Thurs. 8/30 -1.3%

2:50pm CDT - Another losing CL system trade. Officially, it's 0 for 10 this month, down $2600.  But because I overrode a couple trades, I'm only down $1680 MTD on CL.  I do not feel like I won $920 however!   All trades in all symbols YTD I'm at -$1100 or -7.5% (~one CL system winner, in other words...)

Fri. 8/10 -2.7%

1:00pm CDT - CL from yesterday stopped out just before the open again today. It was up $850 while I slept but still short of target.  6E was extra bouncy today (due to Turkish turmoil?).  -$1310 net for this crappy week, all thanks to CL system trades.  6E was breakeven/barely up.

2:55pm CDT - CL from yesterday stopped out just before the open.  Entered short again on another signal and holding (in the money for now). It's been very spikey lately!  6E had a loser then winner.  Once again, should have held longer...

4:45pm CDT - 6E trading was slightly better than yesterday.  Holding a short CL 1-lot from 68.29 and came within 2 ticks of my stop so will likely hit on Sunday but who knows. Perhaps it will gap down (or up)!

Thurs. 7/19 +0.0%

1:35pm CDT - Anticipated a short signal but jumped the gun by seconds and turned out not to be a signal so got out for a tick.  Restricting my system to slower charts and 9:30-11:30 CT trades only makes for very few trades as you've noticed.  Gives me more time to research other ideas but honestly, I've been very lazy and unproductive.  This needs to change soon. But will it?
